TWO by-elections for seats on Chiltern District Council are to take place next month.

The Ashley Green, Latimer and Chenies seat is available following the death earlier this year of former Conservative cabinet member Cllr Graham Sussum at the age of 71 following an illness.

There is also a seat up for grabs in Great Missenden after Independent councillor Bob Swayne resigned on September 1.

The council is accepting nominations for potential candidates until noon on Friday September 24. Both by-elections will then take place from 7am-10pm on Thursday October 21, with the results being announced later that evening.
